"Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery."
During September and October 2000 I was working out of Atlanta, Georgia. This time-out from my normal life was necessitated by personal reasons, but provided me with the opportunity to do photography in one of northeastern North America's finest location for landscape photography Great Smoky Mountain National Parkand the mountains ofNorthern Georgia.
Great Smokyis the United States' most visited national park with more than 10 million visitors per year. It is also arguably the finest place in the United States for Fall colour due to its great variety of hardwood trees and mountainous terrain.
